    Strange....I've had a good friend tell me his 4.5.x.xxx 8130 has done this with the 4.5.x BBM but no one else has had this happen to them??? Pay close attention down the road, I didn't notice it at first but its happened to me at least 3 or 4 times now all randomly.

    Hey Blade welcome to BBOS.

    Part of the problem is the fact that BBM 5 was a leak and not an official version from RIM. So it is still beta and therefore bugs will no doubt rear their ugly head. I use Slacker and BBM 5 and never had an issue. But I did read on another forum that someone was having a similar issue to yours. It is know that apps from 5.0 sometimes do not play nice with those designed for 4.7. So it could be just a compatibility issue between those two programs. I'd be curious if these errors show up in your event log.

    Once you install BBM do a battery pull before opening the program.

    Exclamation BBM5 (5.0.0.8) OS Ver. Compatibility

    Ok sorry if I appear to be sounding stern but I've seen TONS of posts on TONS of threads of people asking and attempting this... so once and for all. :aargh4:

    BBM5 (5.0.0.8) DOES NOT WORK on any Operating System version greater than:


    5.0.0.15x

    If your installed OS ver. is LESS THAN or EQUAL TO: 5.0.0.15x = BBM5 WORKING.

    If your installed OS ver. is GREATER THAN: 5.0.0.15x = BBM5 NOT WORKING.

    Now just cross your fingers and hope for a new BBM5 leak that is compatible with OS's greater than 5.0.0.15x
